I was watching Rush Hour 2 on my second setup (samsung 27" 480p tv) with my JVC XVS65GD hooked up with analog audio cables and progressive scan. Anyway, I was cycling trough the audio tracks and found it odd that i was hearing audio when i selected the DTS track. Bear in mind that this was with analog cables directly to the tv. As far as i know this dvd player doesn't have a dts decoder but the higher model (75) does. My question is, is this common on dvd players because my old ones, as far as i know, don't produce any sound in dts mode through analog hookups.

I dont know about the 65 model. I have the 75 which does have the decoder built in(which I never use anyways). The 65 might have a downmix option for DTS, where it downmixes DTS to 2.0 in the player. Some Sony models do this too.

DTS can not be passed via analog. Your player is decoding, downmixing, and converting to analog.
